Caution: Excessive alcohol intake can potentially lead to liver dysfunction and/or damage. Pravastatin can potentially do the same. Taken together the risk increases. Alcohol consumption in moderation (couple of drinks a day) in individuals with no history of liver disease, while on statins, would be unlikely to cause a problem. Periodic monitoring of liver function should be done.
